Our fifth annual Curbed Cup concludes with a matchup between this year’s No. 1 and 2 seeds. Polls open through the morning of Jan. 2. Go.
Assembly Row saw some epic prices this year (and sales) as well as fresh development such as the Alloy condos (and plans for tons more). The Somerville neighborhood also continued to draw shoppers, tenants, and buyers to an area that only a few short years ago had little going for it—a truly transformative project for the region.
The northern reaches of Boston’s largest neighborhood by area had a particularly busy 2016. First, major developments moved forward, including the 362-unit and possibly 10-building Dot Block and the 475-unit, 10-acre expansion of the South Bay center (including a 130-room hotel).
Then there were any number of big-time residential sales in Savin Hill, Fields Corner, Jones Hill, Meeting House Hill, and Uphams Corner (a.k.a. Upper Dorchester, for lack of a better moniker)—all of them involving achingly gorgeous properties.
